Burning Bowl Ceremony

Burning Bowl Ceremony

A Unity Burning Bowl ceremony involves each participant writing all things they wish to let go of on one piece of paper and all things they wish to accept into their life on another. Things to let go of may be negative feelings about persons, places, events or illness, conditions which are not desirable, habits or behaviors, and etc.

Those things to accept would be anything that is desired or would improve one’s life. The “letting go” list is lit by a large white candle and allowed to burn into ash while the participant visualizes them dissolving and disappearing. The “acceptance” or prosperity list is sealed in a self addressed envelope which will be mailed back to the participant at the end of the new year.

New Year resolutions are a typical way of celebrating the new year, but the Burning Bowl ceremony help cleanse the mind of the things that are negative or no longer serving us. The thought is that to allow for the prosperous gifts of the new year one must release the baggage of the old.

You Were…

Wherever I traveled. You were manifested; Wherever I looked. You were revealed. In ka’ba, idol-temple, synagogue, and church, I saw All were searching for You, and to all You were a Friend. I sought only You in every person I met, every place I went; You were in every sign, both the outer and the…

It is in our nature to find our way

It is in our nature to find our way

It is in the nature of a way to reveal itself. A way does not wish to hide or be undiscovered. Until it is discovered, its purpose for existing is not realized. If you do not see it clearly, ask it to show itself to you. Do not be afraid to call out, “Brother Way!…
